Modern, Tooth-Colored Fillings
Tooth decay, which leads to cavities in your teeth, is highly preventable with good hygiene and routine family dental care. Nevertheless, cavities remain the most common chronic dental disease, and tooth fillings are often the best way to address them. A cavity is a hole that forms and grows as decay progresses through a tooth. A tooth filling is how Dr. Hamidi stops the cavity from growing and restores the strength, integrity, and health of the tooth. Though fillings are commonly made from metal amalgam due to its strength, we prefer to use safer, more discreet tooth-colored composite resin to create a filling that blends in almost seamlessly with your smile.
At Your Appointment
During your initial appointment, Dr. Hamidi will assess the severity of your cavity to make sure that a tooth filling is your best option. In severe cases, root canal therapy may be the only way to save the tooth. If a filling is the right solution, Dr. Hamidi will carefully clean away the oral bacteria and infected tooth structure, then place the tooth-colored composite resin into the cavity. Once the resin is hardened with a curing light, it will retain its form-fitting shape and protect your tooth from further harm while restoring its healthy and naturally beautiful appearance.
